Description

The Gambit collaboration is a new effort in the world of global BSM fitting -- the combination of the largest possible set of observational data from across particle, astro, and nuclear physics to gain a synoptic view of what experimental data has to say about models of new physics. Using a newly constructed, open source code framework, Gambit have released several state-of-the-art scans of large BSM-model parameter spaces, which have revealed structures masked by the Simplified Model approach that dominates LHC collaborations' in-house data interpretations. I will present the publicly available Gambit framework for marshalling physics calculations and assembling composite likelihoods -- including its use of OpenMP and MPI parallelisation, and novel scanning algorithms -- as well as headline results from Gambit's programme of BSM data recasting.
